CREDO Action (an arm of the company CREDO Mobile) , Move On, and like-minded organizations oppose punishing al-Assad’s regime for using chemical weapons.
A previous post has argued that physically punishing the al-Assad regime for this act is essential for preventing a huge amount of cruel, indiscriminate future slaughter.
In the 1940s there occurred a choice that is exactly analogous to the present one.
The question was whether or not to bomb the railroad lines that transported victims to the concentration camps.
Although that question was not posed to the public, if it had been, the exact analog of the position presently taken by CREDO Action and Move On would have been to oppose bombing the railroad lines.
CREDO Action, MoveOn, your position is morally indefensible.
